about

This release is part of the Veneto West - Storia series. All proceeds support an LA based Cancer Support Charity.

The Last Laugh was a proto-emo post-punk band that came out of the Washington DC punk Scene. In late 1983 the DC punk band Freak Baby split with three members forming The Last Laugh and 2 member continuing on as Freak Baby with future Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl joining them on guitar. The new formation of Freak Baby eventually evolved into the great DC band Dain Bramage.

The Last Laugh shared the stage with the likes of Beefeater, Iron Cross, Madhouse and others. During their time together, The Last Laugh members ranged from 15 to 17 years old.

In late 1983 or early 1984 The Last Laugh teamed up with producer Barrett Jones who would go on to work with Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Pear Jam, and The Melvins. The Last Laugh would be one of Jones’ first producer clients. Together they recorded an eponymous EP and the album “Growing Up”. This release of “Growing up has the first EP as additional bonus tracks.
